What is tolerance a function of?

In his column, MJ Akbar praises Indian secularism. Yup, the fact that we have maintained communal harmony by and large is praiseworthy. But who should the credit go to? 

Tolerance and communal harmony is a function of the the majority or the minority? He might want to read up some dope on the Mughal rule in India on how secular India was then. 

Comparing with other parts of the subcontinent - Pakistan Bangladesh might give the answer.
